Playing the God card

Will someone please tell me why Barack Obama gets a pass on this? I mean, Mike Huckabee has an ad with a bookcase that sorta kinda looks like a cross, and the media goes apey.

A word from the arch-bitch-shop

This is American bishop Catherine Roskam, who caused a ruckus at the Anglican Church's Lambeth Conference. She basically said that because some men beat their wives, and most of the bishops at the conference are men, then there must be some wife-beaters among the bishops.

"We have 700 men here. Do you think any of them beat their wives? Chances are they do. The most devout Christians beat their wives... many of our bishops come from places where it is culturally accepted to beat your wife."

You know, some women are beyotches. There are an increasing number of ordained women in the Anglican Church, so there must be some beyotches among the female Anglican clergy.

RIP, Bernie Mac

Just saw the devastating news on FoxNews.com that actor/comedian Bernie Mac has died at the age of 50.

My first real exposure to Bernie Mac was his role in Ocean's 11 and his unforgettable "hand lotion" scene. A comedic genius. God rest his soul.

Report: American TV has too much naughty sex. Nuh uhhhh!!!

The Parents Television Council (PTC) has just released a report that reveals that American TV is big on extramarital sex and light on married sex.

Knock me over with a feather. Never woulda figured that one out on my own.

I kinda scratch my head over outfits like the PTC. I mean, community advocacy, awareness-raising, yada yada yada, good on them. On the other hand, what's the point? If you are too dumb to realize that the vast majority of television programming is inappropriate for kids, I hope you don't have them. And forget asking Hollywood to look like Kansas. Ain't gonna happen, folks.

The interesting thing is that the report admits that most married Americans have happier and more frequent sex than non-marrieds, so perhaps we're not so swayed by the boob tube. Either way, I do not expect the entertainment industry to reflect my values or teach my values. I just reach for the remote.

For what it's worth, here are the top five family-friendly programs in heavy TiVo rotation at GGB Central:

Good Eats
Modern Marvels
Big Daddy's Kitchen
Platinum Weddings

There's an upside to a Fred Phelps stalking

Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist "Church" knuckleheads are at it again.

They picketed Tim Russert's funeral, and now they plan a repeat performance at the late great Tony Snow's funeral.

I'm beginning to think that instead of reviling these people, we ought to thank them. If you get picketed by Fred and Co., besides the unfortunate fact that you are dead, you probably did something right in life to piss him off. You were probably a fallen military hero or -- like Snow -- an honorable public figure. Heck, even Jeffrey Dahmer looks like a dignified saint next to Fred Phelps.

Seriously, as hard as it might be, I think Jill Snow ought to walk right up to Freddie, shake his hand and thank him for all the positive publicity for her dearly departed husband.

I'm only half joking.

Do you think there's a way to piss off Fred Phelps while you're still alive? I mean, wouldn't it be great to get a personal damning-to-hell from Freddo himself? I could sell T-shirts: "Fred Phelps' Proud Whore of Babylon Since 2008."

I mean, I don't think this guy is ever going to relent unless someone turns him into mashed potatoes. (Which I'm surprised hasn't happened yet.) Might as well make a profit and have some fun why he's still making an ass of himself.
